Personally, I would rather eat whipped cream. I loved it when I was a kid and I had big plans when I was little to grow up and eat nothing but whipped cream. ; )
So when I saw:
Wash Your Hair with Whipped Cream and Hundreds More Offbeat Uses for Even More Brand-Name Products by Joey Green at the library, curiosity got the best of me and I checked it out.
Here are ones I might actually try:
~Extend the life of freshly cut flowers with 20 drops of Chlorox bleach in each qt. of water
~Use 1 cup of Aunt Jemima syrup to prolong the life of a Christmas tree
~Remove stains from carpets with Barbasol shaving cream
~Use ChapStick to stop bleeding while shaving
~Remove white rings from wood furniture with Miracle Whip
And here's a highlight: Tang isn't just for drinking. (not that I ever do anyway) The citric acid in it will clean your toilet and get rid of grunge and soap scum in your dishwasher.
Now these, were just goofy:
~Use your hairdryer to dry salad greens or warm your bed sheets
~Use Alberto VO5 hairspray to immobilize flying insects (Imagine the fun I can have in Florida with mosquitoes, if I have nothing better to do, that is)
~Put Crisco on a snow shovel to prevent snow sticking (Can't try that here)
~Use a Frisbee as a pet dish
~Jell-0 dissolved in warm water can be used as styling gel (not trying that one!)
~Use a tooth brush to stake up small plants (lovely!)
~Clean wallpaper with day-old Wonder bread (I knew that stuff wasn't for human consumption!)
~And last but not least, condition your hair with 1/2 cup of whip cream once a week and leave it on for 30 minutes...If you can keep from eating it.
